New Delhi, Mar 26 (ANI): Concerned over the growing number of cyber crime cases in the country, the Government on Thursday said that an international crisis management plan needs to be put in action.

It also laid emphasis on information exchange, investigation and coordinated response at a global level by the law enforcing agencies to deal with the menace effectively.

Inaugurating a conference on Police Cooperation against Cyber Crime here, Cabinet Secretary K M Chandersekhar revealed that government has organised a computer emergency response team at a national level.

He revealed that this team is working round the clock in close coordination with the other countries to keep a stringent check on online crimes.

Chandersekhar pointed out threats to the people, economies, services and national security from cyber criminals. He noted that over one trillion US dollars move electronically annually and that makes it the target for criminals.

He also said that 97 per cent of cyber offences go undetected.

Speaking on the occasion, CBI Director Mr. Ashwani Kumar called for cooperation between the law enforcing agencies and private sector entities.
